Lansing School District 158 received the following letter from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources regarding our efforts to support the chimney swift birds at Coolidge Elementary School. Thank you to Regional Wildlife Biologist Mr. Domazlicky for his visibility, advice, collaboration, and positive feedback regarding this situation.
On Monday, August 27, Lansing School District 158's Time Travelers performed "The Incredible Westward Movement" at the Lansing Public Library.

Thanks to Mrs. DiGrispino for directing and the Lansing Historical Society for hosting the event!
